Nexus rumors have begun! In other news, Galaxy S6 promo from Sprint has leaked and Vimeo is finally supporting Chromecast.
It’s early in the year, but time has shown us it’s never too soon to start the Nexus rumors. Nexus-related leaks and rumors seem to be the most popular, so let us give you the first Nexus murmurs of 2015.
Sources are claiming there will be two Nexus devices being made this year, one by LG and another one by a Chinese manufacturer. It is assumed the former will come with high end specs, while the Chinese Nexus will be sold as an affordable option.
This source keeps pretty quiet about which Chinese manufacturer he is referrign to, but he dropped a pretty big clue. Part of the rumor is that this Chinese phone may come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor or it’s very own chip. This means odds are he is talking about Huawei, which is the biggest manufacturer in China that makes its own chips.
Opinion: Xiaomi is another option, but they don’t believe in growing fast. Chances are they would rather not take on such venture. Of course, there’s also Lenovo, Meizu and OnePlus, but those seem like unlikely options, as well.
Another day, another Samsung Galaxy S6 leak. It seems such will be the case until the phone is announced, next week. This happens to be one of the best looks at the Samsung Galaxy S6 we have had, though.
This image is said to come from a Sprint employee who put the picture up in a Reddit post. It shows both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, with the familiar design we have now seen multiple times. It also uses the same “Six Appeal” advertising quote and tells us about a giveaway Sprint will be holding. Of course, given that this is all real. It certainly looks like it.
Opinion: This image is super clear, but we still can’t take a look at the bottom part. I guess you can’t have everything in life! I think we have seen enough leaks to tell what the overall design will be like, though. Are you liking it?
It seems nowadays you can’t really call yourself a big streaming service if you haven’t added Chromecast support. This is why we have all been stressing out over Vimeo taking so long to support Google’s HDMI dongle. Many of us love Vimeo, but we couldn’t use it with our Chromecast (at least not without doing some tinkering).
Thos days are over, as Vimeo has just added support for Chromecast. That is the good news… the bad news is that not everyone has the feature yet. For now this is an iOS-only upgrade. Android support is said to arrive “in the coming months”.
Opinion: Come on Vimeo! Even when you are moving forward you are still behind. Bring Android support!
